PhD in Nanoscience and Advanced Materials at Universidade Federal do ABC (UFABC), under supervision of Prof. André Sarto Polo. She was a research intern at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, under supervision of Prof. Gerald J. Meyer. BSc in Science and Technology (2014), BSc in Chemistry (2015) and MSc in Nanoscience and Advanced Materials (2017) at UFABC. The main research interest is the investigation of systems for solar-to-electrical or solar-to-chemical energy conversion employing Ru(II) and Re(I) coordinarion compounds. These systems are I) Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs) or II) the production of solar fuels by artificial photosynthesis, in solution or using photoelectrodes. The main tools employed for these investigations are the synthesis and characterization of Ru(II) and Re(I) polypyridyl complexes and the use of spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques to understand the the photophysics, photochemistry and dynamics of electron transfer in these systems. Physical-chemical approaches aim to establish relationships between changes in the molecular structures of the compounds, their properties and the performance of the energy conversion systems.
